Disease prevention and treatment

Ways You Could Prevent Your Child From Having Cancer

Cancer is a disease caused by an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. It can affect any part of the body and can spread to other parts of the body if not treated. Cancer can be caused by environmental, genetic, or lifestyle factors. Cancer treatment typically involves surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. However, as a mother, they are some ways you could prevent your child from having Cancer, and in this article, I'll be discussing them in line with the publication of CDC.Gov.

1. Avoid Drinking alcohol and or using tobacco during pregnancy; Avoiding alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy can help to reduce the risks of a child developing cancer later in life. These substances can cause a range of health problems for the unborn baby, including an increased risk of birth defects and developmental issues.

2. Preventing children from being exposed to secondhand smoke; According to Cleveland Clinic, secondhand smoke can cause respiratory problems, such as asthma and bronchitis, in children and can also lead to an increased risk of ear infections, colds, and other illnesses. Children exposed to secondhand smoke are also at a higher risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other developmental problems.

3. Reducing exposure to traffic-related air pollution can help protect your child from the carcinogenic effects of air pollution, as well as other health issues such as asthma, heart disease, and respiratory illnesses. By limiting exposure to air pollution, parents can help ensure their children stay healthy and safe.

4. Cancer can be prevented by preventing adverse childhood experiences. These experiences can include abuse, neglect, poverty, and other traumatic experiences. These experiences can have a long-term impact on physical and mental health. Creating a safe and nurturing environment for children can help them build resilience and reduce their risk of developing cancer in the future.
